Welcome to the Big Cats In Britain Wildlife Trigger Camera Blog

Welcome to the Big Cats In Britain Wildlife Trigger Camera Blog

The Big Cats in Britain organisation, (BCIB), predominately searches for evidence of native and non native feline species living in the British Countryside. Part of our research includes the use of wildlife trigger cameras, also known as stealth cams or trail cams . These operate using infra-red technology to take pictures of any animal that passes the camera.

Our members have dozens of these cameras in various locations around the British Isles, operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

This blog is dedicated to showing the general public, the animals we have captured on camera. These images are small snapshots of the diversity of animal life that can be found in our countryside.

We hope you enjoy them.......................

Mature Roe Deer Buck Video from Argyll

Once again I've been lucky with one of my cameras. Still no big cat, but I got a number of video's of a small group of Roe Deer, in a small wood on private land in the south of Kintyre. The group seems to comprise of a mature buck, with some nice large antlers, a smaller younger buck just starting to grow his antlers. Two or possibly three females. One with one fawn and one with twin fawns. I'll post these video's over the next few weeks.

The first one is of the larger Roe Deer buck, you can clearly see him rubbing his antlers against a fallen branch. This video was taken at about 3:00pm on the 13th July 2010

The strange thing is, the owners of the land had remarked that they hadn't seen any deer for weeks, and wondered if they had moved elsewhere. They were also only aware of one buck and a couple of females with one fawn. I'm pleased that we can show there are a lot more deer hiding in their woods than they thought. It just shows how well these animals are able to blend into their surroundings.
